Tonight’s Mets vs Nationals game has been postponed due to poor weather in the Washington, DC area. The teams will play two seven-inning games tomorrow as part of a doubleheader before playing in the regular-season finale on Sunday. Tomorrow’s first pitch will take place at 3:05 ET tomorrow, and the second game will begin less than an hour after the first game finishes.

Though the Nationals have been eliminated from postseason contention, the Mets retain an unlikely but still-possible path to the playoffs. Tonight’s scheduled starters of Rick Porcello and Max Scherzer will likely start one game, while Cy Young hopeful Jacob deGrom and Anibal Sanchez, will start the other, though that may change.

The Mets’ slim playoff chances are as much in the hands of the teams ahead of them as they are in their own. Regardless, the Mets must keep winning to keep the already very slight hopes of making the playoffs alive.
